Seemingly unfazed at being ousted from the Asian Athletics Association, scam-tainted Suresh Kalmadi on Monday said losing the presidential re-election bid to Qatar’s Dahlan Jumaan Al-Hamad has actually given him a chance to work at the “grassroots” level.
“I have no issues today and I congratulate Mr Al-Hamad for being elected as President. I am rather relieved that I will be able to work at the grassroots level in athletics,” Mr. Kalmadi said after losing the vote during the ongoing AAA Congress in Pune.

S. Korea, U.S. to discuss DPRK rocket launch at upcoming talks

Seoul -  South Korea and the United States are scheduled to hold defense talks involving discussions on the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK)'s failed  rocket launch earlier this month, the defense ministry here said Monday.

The two-day "Korea-U.S. integrated defense dialogue (KIDD)" will be held Thursday in Washington, bringing together Seoul's deputy defense chief Lim Kwan-bin and his U.S. counterpart  James Miller for high-level defense policy coordination.

The inaugural talks will discuss issues raised at the Extended Deterrence Policy Committee, the Strategic Alliance 2015 Working Group and the Security Policy Initiative forum.

DPRK's failed rocket launch, which Seoul and Washington say was a disguised long-range missile test, will be on the agenda as the allies seek to coordinate their response.

The launch, conducted in apparent defiance of a United Nations ban, has sparked international outcry despite Pyongyang's claim that it was meant to mark the birth centennial of the  country's founding father Kim Il Sung.

During the Washington talks, the allies are also expected to set the agenda for the upcoming talks among the South Korean and U. S. defense chiefs and top diplomats and for the 44th

Security Consultative Meeting.
